The history of the hotel is captivating. Marta Becket had a dream and is still living her dream on the property, albeit with 24 hour care. The staff is excellent and knowledgeable. I doubt the hotel is up to code. They have established themselves as a non-profit. Give a donation and then stay somewhere else.
The only source of heat is a small space heater that runs 24/7. It does not adequately heat the room or bathroom and it is VERY cold during the winter months. You will blow the circuit breaker if you use your hairdryer. The hallway smells of sewage. The sheets are so thread bare you can see through them. Carpet is ripped and old. The hotel needs ALOT of work.
You need to remember this is a very old hotel. However, it was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Even though it was very old it was very clean.
It's in a good location if you're visiting Death Valley. It's an old and fun place to stay at. There's ample parking.
It's overpriced. You can be old and clean, but this wasn't the case. The hotel is old and dirty. There is no cell phone coverage because it's in Death Valley, but the reservation staff told us not to plug anything (E.G. cell phone charger) in the electrical sockets because it'll trigger a power surge and cut the power. There's one space heater to heat the room. The bathroom door didn't lock.The tub and sink ponded (didn't drain properly). The red / maroon colored carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. The coffee in the dining room is weak. One of the beds was broken--when you get up, it lifts. The bed spread, blanket, pillows, and bed are very worn. The condensation from the sky light in the bathroom dripped on us and the floor.
Chose it for location close to Death Valley Park.
The cafe/restaurant had been closed for some time but this was still listed when reserved. It had been flooded a couple of months earlier and the normal heating didn't work. The small electric heater was insuffient and if other electric items were used the circuit breaker tripped. The plumbing was a disaster. The drain was plugged and toilets didn't evacuate. Strangely we had hot and cold water at the sink but not in the shower. The first day only cold water in the shower. The second day at first only hot water. 5 minutes later the cold flowed also. Tried the Wifi offered in the common room but it didn't work well. Didn't find much charm but spartan and old. Charged a resort fee. For what? The plumbing
Great location (Death Valley and Los Angeles), unique atmosphere.
You should wear warm pijamas - if you use the heater, you can not sleep because of its noise, if you do not use the heater, you will catch a cold.
It is so quirky. You can't compare it to a run of the mill hotel. It is an experience second to none.
The place is historic. There is a difference between historic and rundown. This place is rundown. We ended up not staying there. It was 40 degrees outside and the room was cold. There was a small electric space heater that kept blowing the fuse and all the lights would go out. It was a fire hazard and we didn't feel safe leaving it on while sleeping. The night manager said there wasn't anything more he could do. He wouldn't refund our money.
The Hotel & Opera House are rich with the history of Death Valley and, especially, the extraordinary legacy of Marta Beckett and Death Valley Junction. The visitor should expect spartan but clean surroundings, a hospitable staff, and a journey through time to twenty-mule team days.
Check the shower before accepting your assigned room. Mine had very low pressure (probably due to the very old plumbing.) On a previous stay, in a different room, the shower was fine.
Amargosa Opera House is a hotel of historic importance and has a charming air about it. It is so different from what you see everywhere else. Beautiful place and a must-see only a little way off the Death Valley. An experience on its own...
Historical value! Very interesting place! Worth a visit!
Food was not available! The drive for meals was long!
My stay was solely to see the Opera House, and learn more about Marta Becket. As a fellow artist, I was truly inspired. The staff was wonderful and full of information. Sorry that I'll never get to see Marta perform.
It was quiet.I'm
Proximity to Death Valley. Uniqueness.
The atmosphere was lovely. Just an old-fashioned outpost in the middle of nowhere, no cell service, no television in the room, extremely quiet. Plus, the building interior is beautiful, with all the old furniture and paintings on the walls (which I guess were done by Marta Becket herself?).
Only thing was that the shower took a long time to heat up. This is a frequent thing in old houses and not unexpected, but if you don't like dealing with old house things like that, maybe this isn't the place for you. I only felt bad about it because the last thing you want to do in this area is waste water.
The staff tried to be helpful. The location.
A shower that plugged up, and when we were moved to another room, a shower that only dribbled water; the overall run- down state of the place; the musty smell. It was NOT value for the money spent.
The room was clean. The tiles in bathroom were repaired and mismatched (difficult to match 1920's tiles. They have a policy of no distractions in the rooms - so no TV & no wifi in room. But wifi in common areas. TV was screening doco of the current owner- very interesting to get the history of the great lady Marta Becket & the Opera House. In its heyday, this place would have been hoppin'. They need patronage to help keet this place going.
The dining room wasn't operational because the person got really sick and the lease was up in a month or so. As yet no one else has taken up the lease.
Kath's warm welcome and opera house tour. The beautiful DVD of the history of Marta's life at Armagosa The history filled atmosphere of the place, contrasting with the sterile splendour of posh hotels in Las Vegas. The location....great jumping off point for early morning trip through Death Valley (after overnight rain!)
Very friendly people and close to Death Valley State Park. 7 miles away is a casino with warm food till late evening. And even everything is very old at the Amargosa Opera House it's a warm, welcome and clean (!) place.
The price for one room is a little too high compare to other hotels/lodges. But at the end it's ok because it's so close to Death Valley ... So if you're looking for a more modern or luxuary place better take another hotel.
Nothing......not to put to fine a point on it, this is an outrageously overpriced hole.
Beds old and uncomfortable, air conditioner barely worked, the place smelled sewer-ish, it is outrageously overpriced.....I've stayed in much nicer places for less than half the cost and I got the "sale" price.the closest place to eat is seven miles away at longstreet hotel and casino......which has a great restaurant and bar and modern rooms for much less.
Everything completely won out
No food or service
This hotel is located just at the entrance of the death valley junction. To be precise right at the start of 190. Budget hotel with right amenities. Had a good sleep. I would have given 10 out of 10 but few things requires some attention
towel contain holes.
everything, the hotel is really appealing...we strongly suggest it!!!
I first saw the Amargosa hotel in a photograph at a Boyd and Evans exhibition in Birmingham 2 years ago and thought then that I MUST stay there on an American road trip. En route from SanFrancisco to NewcYork I booked a night but ended up staying two so captivated was I by the location , the history and the wonderful hotel and staff. Rhonda and Bob. I don't want to give too much away but go there and just sit in the opera house and then watch the DVD about the legend that is Martha Becket. Trust me, if you are in Death Valley STAY THERE!

A unique hotel with a lot of history with the opera house and the paintings. Excellent staff very friendly and good location at a good price if passing via death valley. The room was clean.
